A Pompeiian Spectacle for a Sunday Night

Posted on November 5th, 2009 by

Professor Martin Winkler, internationally renowned expert in Classics and Film Studies, wowed Gusties on Sunday night, Nov. 1st with his lecture “The Last Days of Pompeii: From Fact to Fiction and Film.”  Professor Winkler took us through a whirlwind tour of receptions of Pompeii across the centuries and via a range of media, from books to the stage to the movie screen.  The lecture kicked off a number of events throughout the week, during which Professor Winkler visited classes, met with students and faculty, and presented a rare Italian film of Vergil’s Aeneid to members of Eta Sigma Phi on Wednesday.  Many thanks to Professor McHugh, who arranged the visit, and to other departments across campus who assisted in planning and hosting Professor Winkler!
